Day 21 – Oven Glass Cleaner


Yesterday’s post got me started on a cleaning spree. Now that I had clean carpets, it was time to tackle my oven.

I do have a self-cleaning oven, but the glass on the oven door never seems to get clean. This pin claimed that all you needed for the job was some baking soda and a little water.

I’m embarrassed to even show you this, but this is what my oven glass looked like before:

The pin suggested starting with 1/2 cup of baking soda and adding a little water until you have a thin paste that will spread easily. She went on to say that she didn’t have enough paste to cover all of her glass, so I used 3/4 cup of baking soda and that was definitely enough to get full coverage.

Spread the mixture on and let it sit for 15-20 minutes. I went for the full 20 minutes because mine was so gross.

Depending on how much gunk you have on your glass, you might just be able to wipe the mixture off with a damp towel and be done. Because of a recent stuffed shell incident, I had some gunk to get off. I just scrubbed those areas with an old toothbrush first, then wiped it all off.

  1. I tried this method a few weeks ago, but it did nothing for my oven. 🙁 I’ll have to try again with a little more scrubbing effort.

  2. My brother suggested I might like this website. He used to be totally right. This post actually made my day. You cann’t believe just how so much time I had spent for this info! Thanks!

  3. I use baking soda to clean just about everything. It removes without scratching. I moved to a new home and had to leave behind my built in toaster oven. When we arrived at the new house the previous owners had tossed their old toaster oven on top of the trash can. It was nasty but I needed one. I used baking soda to scrub it clean and have been using that toaster over for 10 years!

  4. I am so going to try this right now! I just got baking soda last night!

  5. This probably works better if your oven door is not as dirty as mine. It may or may not have been more than 3 years since I cleaned it. After using this trick, the oven door is slightly cleaner, but not enough (even after elbow grease – I use this method on dirty pans all the time) to really call it worth the time and effort.
